The Golden Bough

The Golden Bough

“By religion, then, I understand a propitiation or conciliation of powers superior to man which are believed to direct and control the course of nature and of human life. Thus defined, religion consists of two elements, a theoretical and a practical, namely, a belief in powers higher than man and an attempt to propitiate or please them. Of the two, belief clearly comes first, since we must believe in the existence of a divine being before we can attempt to please him. But unless the belief leads to a corresponding practice, it is not a religion but merely a theology; in the language of St. James, “faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” In other words, no man is religious who does not govern his conduct in some measure by the fear or love of God. On the other hand, mere practice, divested of all religious belief, is also not religion. Two men may behave in exactly the same way, and yet one of them may be religious and the other not. If the one acts from the love or fear of God, he is religious; if the other acts from the love or fear of man, he is moral or immoral according as his behaviour comports or conflicts with the general good.”

to my cognition James George Frazer diverts from the real issue, because for whom or what it is important whether we are religious or not, if we only ready and willing would be to love one another instead to hating?
but unlike the erotic love requires the highest form of love, namely the comprehensive love of mankind more than just the body, because "man does not live by bread alone ..."
(my perspectives are of course not the measure of all things!!)

an excellent masterpiece with an interesting topic, dear Manuel!

But the body and the bread help a lot... ;-)

the word "bread" I've used here as a metaphor for the body ...! ;-)
of course we also need physical affection, but what is it worth it if only the erotic love in the "game" ...?
